A couple from New England in the north of New South Wales in Australia who live their lives on the road have won a huge $200,000 Lucky Lotteries prize which will keep them going for even longer.
The winning couple, who decided to remain anonymous when they claimed their Lucky Lotteries prize, told lottery officials that they plan to celebrate their $200,000 win with a celebratory meal. The couple describe themselves a “nomadic” couple but have been consistently playing the lottery while driving their caravan across the country.
Recently we told you about a grandfather from New South Wales who also won big, with his fortune coming on the Australian Powerball, while another New South Wales man said that he used his knowledge of maths to help him win over $400,000 on the Australian Saturday Lotto.
The Lucky Lotteries winner said that after finding out her ticket had won the $200,000 prize, she felt shaky but excited. “We won’t be eating mince in the caravan tonight,” she said. “We’ll be pigging out for sure!” A Maryland Bonus Match 5 winner was planning to go out and celebrate his 70th birthday in style thanks to his $50,000 win.
Lucky Lotteries is a raffle game with 10,000 winners guaranteed in each draw and unlike most lotteries, every ticket has a unique number attached to it. “I’ve been keeping an eye on the big Lucky Lotteries jackpot and I didn’t want to miss any draws,” she said. A couple were planning to travel around the UK after winning £500,000 on the Thunderball and buying a new motorhome.
The Lucky Lotteries winners plan to buy a new four-wheel drive with their $200,000, “This one is getting on a bit and struggling with the van,” the winner explained, continuing to say that they’ll also buy a few upgrades for their mobile home such as a new heater and a satellite television to put in their caravan. “We love travelling Australia and this will keep us going,” they said. “This win is fantastic.” A couple from Ontario in Canada who won $100,000 on the Lotto 649 were planning to spend a lot more time travelling to places such as South Africa, Australia and New Zealand thanks to their good fortune.
